The Special Misogyny Reserved for Mothers

Hey, Hillary here. I’ve been working on this piece, a little at a time, for awhile—about how I never faced misogyny at work until I made work about mothers. I honestly wasn’t sure I ever wanted the article to see the light of day. And then I took a deep breath and sent it to the New York Times. And they published it. If you can relate, leave a comment. And if you want more discrimination-against-working-moms content, check out our series, It’s A Real Mother.
